Intrusive volcanic features

Intrusive Volcanic Features


Caldera crater

  • Sills are thin horizontal sheets of hardened magma between layers.

  • Laccoliths are blister-like intrusions, usually near the surface, that form when magma pushes overlying layers upward.

  • Dikes are thin vertical sheets of hardened magma intruded into fractures in the crust.

  • Batholiths are usually granitic and cover hundreds or thousands of square kilometers.
